deterioration of our country and i believe that romney needs to speak out and show the distinction between the democrat form, which is embrace gay marriage, doubled down on abortion, which waffled about on whether to include god in the platform. there's never been a time there's a more stark contrast between a democrat and republican. i'm afraid if romney continues this course and doesn't stand and run on the republican flat form, i think a lot of evangelical voters may sit this one out. >> republican platform is against abortion. that's what most americans, the vast majority of americans agree with. are you saying that he should go against with the republican platform, against abortion in all cases? >> i think he needs to make clear he believes in life. my personal view is murder is murder and except in the case of a life of a mother, you don't have a right to take the child's life because of the way the child was conceived, but that's another programming issue. my point here is that republican voters largely are evangelical voters. they vote 3-1 republican. they care about more t

response when pastor jeffers says mitt romney needs to come out and double down. will this work? >> no. the pastor's speaking from a passionate perspective. only around 20% of americans oppose abortion in all cases. as the republican platform calls for. only 20% of americans support that position. the vast majority of americans for example on the issue of abortion believe it should be safe, legal and rare. activists on either side are polarized, but it's simply a losing formula. any candidate needs to appeal to independents and sent riss and that's where extreme positions on social issues. >> the pastor said he's not saying mitt romney has to go further right. he didn't like his point of view necessarily on abortion, but he said if he stuck with rape, incest, life of the mother and skrus pouned his fist -- does that change it? >> no, there's a reason the romney camp has been trying to say this election is about the economy. we heard this during 2010. this is a libertarian argument about it's the economy. about reducing the deficit and debt. virtually every poll. who's better equipped t

republicans and democrats as their ponent. that is to say they carry their base overwhelmingly. romney among independents is winning by three points, so if romney's winning the independents and republicans, do you think in a battleground state like florida, he's nine points down? the answer is no. >> okay. that math doesn't actually work out because according to the florida poll, those who say they're most likely going to vote, 36% say they're democrats, 27% republicans and 33% independents, so as you can see, the math that karl rove laid out doesn't cessarhave to so. ere's ing in our panel h and talk about all of the polling here we do at cnn and howt rks. cnn poll one thing you may have heard is that the polls out there are assuminga higher turnout this election than last. a lot of people say that can't be so there wa so much passion and enthusiasm last time around. cnn polls do not ae any higher rnout, which isan important point of clarification. let's brg in ro martin om the democric avlon. that has becoma rallying cry. there have been a lot of carefully constructed polls put thery

come down to what is the ground game for mitt romney. what is the ground game for president barack obama and will their voters come out? having somebody on a phone call, cell phone or land line, how they are employing to vote is irreleva irrelevant. the question is are they going to bring, are they going to come out, bring their family members out. are they going to bring their neighbors out? to the republicans stop all of this incessant whining about the polls. what you should focus on mike on targeting your voters in critical areas in quitting them to the polls. the real analysis is going to be the first two weeks of early voting. they will get a sense of what the turnout is. go back to 2008. president obama's folks in 2008 actually looked in north carolina as a state they were losing. when they saw early turnout in 2008, they sent troops and money back into north carolina. that's how they won by 14,000 votes. how a poll says it's one thing, but it's what happens when they actually vote. that's what matters at the end of the day. >> but that early voting is why these polls do mat

very enthusiastic. that shows this race continues to be tight and winnable for governor romney. >> jen, do you think this race is winnable for mitt romney? >> we're going to run in every state like we're five points down and we've always said this race was going to be close, so our message to our supporters is don't be complacent. don't rest on any polls. put your blinders on. keep focus on the playbook. we'll sleep and hopefully celebrate on november 7th. we know there's going to be twists and turns. it's a narrower path than i think we would like, but still, 38 days is a long time to go. >> she's got to say that, right? she's got to get her people out to vote. i want to ask you because there's been so much criticism of the polls from the romney side of things. people have said the polls assume more democrats are going to turn out. at cnn, our polls do not assume that and chris wallace, fox news, said the criticism of the polls craziness. he said no self-respecting pollster in the country would a political party, so even fox doesn't seem to be backing the conspiracy theories o

the romney ryan ticket as one that will address issues and will deliver a plan that has impact on middle class americans, that will bring down taxes for all americans. period. there's only one candidate that's actually talking about raising taxes and there's another candidate, the romney ryan ticket, that will cut taxes for all americans. so i think as we go into this, we'll hear a lot more of that. obviously at the debate and this is the next phase f that campaign. >> mitt romney leads according to our poll, on unemployment and the deficit. let me ask you this, ben, because one thing our viewers may assume is that democratic base is now energized and the convention is now partly responsible for that. rece recently, jim -- our new poll, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his people were way more enthusiastic than john mccain's. >> we heard enthusiasm on the

comes down to the base. we had on one of the preachers saying it's all about the base. mitt romney needs to get the base out, but you said no, it's about those independents. those people who aren't on either side. am i saying too much to say you're saying it's not about the ba base? >> no, i just think people sfims get confused with elections. they try to act like maybe a race can only be about the race or independents. when you're running a presidential campaign, you're trying to do both. trying to make sure your core supporters are excited and energized to come out. taking all the steps with your ground game. but you have to reach out to this slender and small group of undecided voters in the middle what haven't made up their mind yet. some are conservative, some are liberal. they're still up for grabs. so the art of politics is you've got to kind of reach out to both at the same time. all the polls i see show that governor romney has great enthusiasm with the base of our party and if he's tied or better with independents, that means he's in a great position in this race. >> well, we s
